RE: new to playstation –
I would go with crystal but the matrix infinity is a good option. They censored it because of certain things that they did. I have a ps2 with one of these chips and it never worked right. It might have had a bad laser or install but still. The ghost2 I dont recomend due to a recovery disc that was coded with Sony PSone Dev Software. I would do those fixes to help the laser to be protected. If it was those 3 chips I would go with Crystal. I hope this helps.
Edit: Most of these modchips have firmwares that dont allow backups but a hacked firmware for some of these chips are avaliable. The one for the 2nd chip isn't allowed here. I just wanted to update on this.
